I've been driving by this place for years and finally stopped in; I wish I had stopped a long time ago. Greeted immediately with a smile. Lovely, charming atmosphere. Same owner for 30+ years. Wait staff very friendly and attentive. Fish Fry was excellent, even for a lunch! Dessert was the best; a little pricey but pretty darn good.

We've dined here many times over the years and I have never been impressed. There is nothing that stands out as unique or special. There is really no ambiance and the food is not that good, especially for the prices they charge. Unmemorable, unremarkable would be how I would sum up my experience with this place.

Had reservations for 7:30pm and was told they needed to clear a table. There was only 3 other parties there so we just thought ok must be giving us a special table? Not! Took 20 minutes to clear a table that had about 8 or more tables surrounding it empty. That should've been first clue to turn around and run... More

My husband and I ordered the Friday fish fry. The fish was very good but the potato pancakes seemed more like hash browns. The atmosphere is is upscale and romantic. Our waitress was very attentive. We will return.

I had been to Red Geranium back in the 90's and wasn't sure it would be as good...but...holy cow...it's exactly the same! Same decor too...if that's possible! Pricing is more on the fine dining level, but we were able to find something that didn't break the bank...lobster salad sandwich!! Divine! We had three for lunch and we all had the... More

We are so sick of sports bars and burgers and pizza. Red Geranium is a wonderful classy place. The chefs and servers are very nice and friendly. Food is stellar. Best thing..no TV's in the dining room. Conversation pervades.

Every July, A group of sorority sisters end an overnight reunion by having lunch before everyone goes home. This year, we decided to go to the Red Geranium in Lake Geneva. It was a great choice. We enjoyed the bright, sunny dining room, prompt service, and delicious food. Since we were a large group, there was no problem and accommodating... More

If you're looking for good seafood in Lake Geneva, I'd highly recommend the Red Geranium. The staff was very attentive and made sure my visit was pleasant. The crab cakes were very enjoyable and their lobster mac and cheese was very rich. When I head back to Lake Geneva, the Red Geranium will be on my list.

Sometimes we like to try nice, simply elegant restaurants. This restaurant is beautifully quaint. It has a wonderful menu and wine selection. Prices vary. Dinners average about 20-25 dollars. But very worth it
